Put your money away! Here are the week’s best free events

Chelsea in Bloom

From a four-metre-long orca whale (made of foliage) to a coral reef (also made of foliage), west London’s swimming with ‘Under the Sea’ themed installations this week for Chelsea in Bloom. More than 80 venues have decked their halls with fishy-meets-floral decor. Head to Sloane Square to book a free rickshaw ride or walking tour so you don’t miss a tulip! Various venues. Until Sat May 25.

Free beer

To relaunch  its fan fave beer ‘Bloody ’Ell’, a blood orange IPA, Beavertown Brewery is giving away 500  free beers to punters. All you have to do to get your hands on one is sign up to donate blood to the NHS – and you were going to do that anyway, right? Right!? Beavertown Brewery. Tube: Tottenham Hale. Sat May 25.

Floral Court Festival

Petersham Nurseries in Covent Garden is marking its first birthday with a four-day celebration. Get down there for free yoga, live music and free booze – the first 100 punters on Friday will get a bellini. Cheers to that! Petersham Nurseries. Tube: Covent Garden. Fri May 24.

Red Bull Fitness

Red Bull might give you wings, and now it can help you to get abs. The energy-drink brand is hosting lunchtime workouts in May. There are cardio, HIIT and mobility sessions. Use the code ‘TimeOut’ to book at and go get sweaty! Red Bull HQ. Tube: Covent Garden. Until May 31.

Summer Bootcamp with Wild Cat Fit

Cancel your gym membership and get shredded in the sun (or rain) at these 50-minute outdoor workouts. Expect a killer mix of cardio and strength training and plenty of #gains.
Merchant Square. Tube: Edgware Rd. Every Tuesday May 21-Jul 9, 6pm.
